For me the configuration depends on the mode.  For RTTY, I use two
separate computers and monitors and other modes I use one. It is somewhat
awkward having two keyboards and mice but both screens are filled with
multiple RTTY decoders. Using this configuration you also have to take
precautions so that you cannot transmit on both radios simultaneously.

I echo Dave's advice.

I also use one computer. one monitor, and one keyboard, along with  a Top Ten
Box for switching.  Software is N1MM +.  It works well.

I tend to switch the audio manually using the switch on the Top Ten Box. 
If I
have a good run going on one band, I leave the audio on that radio only.
Once things slow down a bit, I start listeing to audio on both radios
which is
what I am doing most of the time.  If a guy comes back that is weak on either
I may switch the audio to that radio temporarily to copy them better.

As Dave says, there are a lot of ways to do SO2R.  You just need to figure
what works best for you.
